Ok: so we know that, despite the hype, iPhone v1 is missing a myriad features which simply belong to a state-of-the-art cell phone:
- Songs as Ringtones
- Any flash support
- Instant Messaging
- Picture messages (MMS)
- Video recording
- Voice recognition or voice dialing
- Wireless Bluetooth Stereo Streaming (A2DP)
- One-size-fits-all headset jack
- 3G (EV-DO/HSDPA)
- A real keyboard
- Removable battery
- Expandable Storage
It IS sexy, indeed, but for at least 4 of the above-mentioned “omissions” I wouldn’t consider purchasing one..

Received the following mail from a German colleague today:
da ***** in Urlaub ist, leite ich das Mail an dich weiter. Ich bin jetzt nur nicht mehr sicher, ob du es in Deutsch verstehst. Falls nicht, laÃŸ es mich wissen, dann Ã¼bersetze ich es.
as ***** is on holiday, I’m forwarding you this mail. I’m not too sure if you understand it in German. If that’s not the case, let me know and I’ll translate it for you.
Errm: so if I don’t understand what you wrote, I should inform you, right?
As I said: a perfect Catch-22!
I happen to know of at least 38 kids who hardly slept a wink last night and went off to school, this morning, with a mammoth knot in their stomach; and one of them just happens to be our eldest…
Oh: the joy of end-of-term end-of-school exams!
Good luck, Mouse: I can hardly believe that, after this ultimate hurdle, you will potentially never visit a school again!
